Thanksgiving is a moment in time to remind us to think and act on the many reasons for which we can be thankful.

One of my favorite quotes of the importance of living gratitude is by Johannes A. Gaertner-

To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven. 

I found this quote in a great book, Thanks!, by Robert A. Emmons, Ph.D. This is such an amazing book illustrating the power of gratitude in our own lives and the lives of those around us from our family and friends to those we work with or merely interact with. I started a journal of gratitude four years ago. Once I started thinking about it, it was stunning to me how many things I am truly grateful for from the very simple to the much more complex.

On this day of Thanksgiving. I want to thank all of you who have chosen to read my blog, encouraging me to continue by journey and share it with you. Because of you, I am a healthier, happier person today!
